    Here I am, trying not to think about buying AV8/P7. :smoke: And perhaps a whole new set of eight speakers. :devil:

    But my usual trouble with Arcam, over the last decade or so, is that I buy a new range of kit about a month or two before a newer range is launched. :(

    However, I did luck out with DV27+ rather than regular DV27. :)

    Thankfully these days we have the internet and I won't get "done" by my local Arcam dealer recommending his aging stock on me -- well, not unless I want him to.

    Any rumours about upgrades / newer versions of AV8/P7? Or are these models going to be with us for a while longer yet?

    Hey Stoo - I undertand that an AV9 is due in Dec as well as a P7 plus which will have 14 channels of amplification so you can biwire 7 speakers :devil: :rotfl:

    I don't normally comment on future plans for our models, for obvious reasons. However we are very pleased with the AV8/P7 hardware and I would expect it to remain stable for a long time. SW updates will occasionally be issued for the AV8 - these have been and are currently expected to be field installable.

    Hope this helps,

    John Dawson (Arcam)

    Thanks JD, it help a lot.

    Might not help Mrs StooMonster, but impresses me. Gulp, I may be on the road to buying my fourth iteration of Arcam kit.
